The yard's on fire from the night before and the water's not been working for a week or so

The check left on the table says it's been returned so we'll sit out on the driveway and just watch it burn

This is not how I pictured myself at 23 years old but we can't all be homeowners with pockets lined with gold

I’m feeling sentimental for my teenage years when my biggest complications were my closest peers

and to get a place to party where the cops won't find where maybe I'd get lucky and for sure I'd get high

but I can't go back to my youth and I don't think I would

though times are hard right now

I'm still my own man without direction or a purpose

I make a living being lost out in the world

the amenities aren't much and the pay sure does suck but I've got nothing left to lose

The letters in my mailbox lined with dollar signs every time I get caught up I fall right back behind

if a pink slip means I've got a week to pay my bills then I'll head up to the bar and try to score some pills

when reality stops by in the morning it can be a bitch

so I'll sleep until the afternoon and prove that I'm a

Give me a paycheck
